Bulgarian Police Reveal Image Of Suicide Bomber

Bulgarian officials have released an image, constructed by experts, who they say was the suicide bomber that killed five Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver in Burgas last month along with wounding 30 more people.

The image, computer generated, depicts a man around 30 years old with dark or black hair and dark eyes.

"The police did not release any earlier photos of the bomber, who was decapitated in the explosion, as they would have shocked the public," Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov told reporters.

Police think the bomber stayed in Bulgaria about 20 days before he struck.

Israeli has blames Hezbollah and Iran for the bombing and Iran has denied any involvement.

In a video of the run-up to the July 18 attack, released by police, the bomber wore checked Bermuda shorts and a blue t-shirt and carried a small rucksack. He had long dark curly hair, which appeared to be a wig, under dark blue cap.
